All pollen sold is 100% from our local hives in Lee’s Summit. Bees collect it from local flowers and glue it together with nectar so it sticks on their “pollen baskets” as they head back to hive. Once in the hive it’s normally converted into “bee bread” that used in the feeding of honeybee larva. The way beekeepers get it is to install a pollen trap on the hive that dislodges some of the nodules as they enter the hive. It’s then collected daily, dried, and packaged for sale.
